Report Claims That Some AMD and Nvidia GPUs Are Getting More Expensive

Report claims that some AMD and Nvidia GPUs are getting more expensive. With this new report, should gamers be worried? It is kind of worrying and we just cannot help but to think that this rather underlines the gloomy rumors all making the rounds around the GPU world recently.

AMD and Nvidia GPUs Getting Expensive

AMD and Nvidia GPUs Getting Expensive

It now seems that the prices of graphics cards are going up for some of its models sadly. Although there are still some GPUs put there still experiencing drops in price.

Tom’s Hardware as you should know does a monthly scout of GPU pricing in a bid to produce some very handy stats on the movements of price for graphics cards at US retailers, and for the month of July, there are really some AMD Radeon products that are becoming more expensive by the day as well as some Nvidia cards too.

Price Comparison from the Start of July to Today

Tom’s however compares the current retail price, well, from yesterday, August 3 to the beginning of July, and we got to see that AMD’s RX 7900 XTX has really gone up 4.4%, which is a really fairly hefty rise (in the space of just a month).

The RX 7600 has also tickled up a bit and it is now 1.2% pricier and higher than it was, the other offering of RDNA 3, the 7900 XT has quietly dropped in its price by 2.6%, which is in fact a healthy slide.

It might also interest you to know that some last gen AMD graphics cards are spiking up in their prices, as well, sadly, and most notably the RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 which as you should know are up 10.2% and 11.1% respectively.

AMD’s RX 6750 XT has also risen by 9.4% as well, so that is a trio of RDNA 2 GPUs that are well up about 10%. The 6800 XT also on the other hand has also risen by 4%.

There are fallers also with RDNA 2, as well, though, and this is including the RX 6800 which has drastically dropped a beefy 8.3%, and the RX 6700 XT which is now down by 8.6%.

Nvidia GPU Price Limbo

Turning our attention to Nvidia, we get to see that again there is something of a mixed picture. Current-gen Lovelace GPUs in the market are mostly down, but only very small by 1% to 2% for the RTX 4060 as well as 4070 models (which is quite some good news, as the RTX 4070 is currently one of the best graphics card).

The exception with everything happening here is the vanilla RTX 4060 which is now down at the moment a lot more, thus experiencing a 6.7% drop. The RTX 4080 however is headed in quite the opposite direction as this very GPU has risen by 10% over the previous month.

RTX 3000 graphics cards as you should know are mostly falling in price. The RTX 3090 Ti on the other hand is down by 8.4%, and the RTX 3080 12GB in question has fallen drastically by 6.5%, with the RTX 3070 as well as the 3070 Ti dropping by 7.3% and 9.4% respectively.

Yet the RTX 3060 with everything that is happening is up by 7.7% (and the 3060 Ti on the other hand has risen by 4.7%), plus the RTX 3080 Ti as you should know has witnessed the biggest jump in price of all these GPUs mentioned so far as it is up an eye-watering 14.2%.

Intel’s Arc GPUs as you should know are down in price considerably, with the A770 in particular leading the charge, having dropped quite a hefty 13.2%.
